Crime and Punishment

London and Felling-on-Tyne: The Walter Scott Publishing Company, Ltd., 1893.

First illustrated edition, uncertain issue and publication date. (Undated title page, which may not be an issue point. Turner's The Walter Scott Publishing Company apparently examined a single paperback copy with a title page dated 1911 and no illustrations, while referencing a 1893 ad for the book, which would make their publication date dubious for the first thus. Line Ettlinger and Gladstone reference an 1893 Walter Scott edition of which I can find little documentation. A bit of a bibliographical puzzle.) Original crimson cloth decorated in gilt, black endpapers. 456pp. Illustrated. Good+ with cloth worn and a bit chipped at head and tail, signatures a little strained and rear hinge split but internally clean. A rare early English-language edition of Dostoyevsky's masterpiece. Item #170604001
